Coverage with our organization is mandatory for many businesses in our province, who may not be aware of the necessity or plethora of services we provide. Past efforts to improve our financial position, while necessary, came at the expense of good customer service. Over the years, there began to be a problematic decline in customer satisfaction.

Escuela sin Fronteras by Catalina Hepp

Category: Student

Student: Catalina Hepp

University: Design School of Pontificia Universidad Catolica de Chile

Location: Chile

Summary: In recent years migration has rapidly increased in Chile, leading to a great number of migrant students entering the public educational system. This has created several conflicts within schools, such as bullying, stereotyping and segregation. Most of the time, institutions and teachers lack the resources or tools to face these issues, preventing them from creating intercultural and inclusive spaces that promote learning for migrant
students.
